I've been beating my head over this for the last day or so.. Here is what I need
I need to know how and if there is a way to authenticate Linux systems via AD and not have the users entered into the /etc/shadow or the /etc/passwd file. This is so that ANY active directory user can log into the Linux system almost like how people log into Windows systems.
Is there a way to accomplish this? I prefer using the tools that come with Linux (pam, samba, kerberos, winbind, etc over using a "pay for" product...)
